The narration of this book is perfect. Right from the start, she pulled me in with her interesting story and infuriatingly, wonderfully mysterious way of telling it.
And then it stops being PG in the weirdest way, and that keeps happening. The story kind of loses its fire. It keeps the mysterious narration, but even that loses (some of) its greatness. (Still at a nice level of great, though.)
The first 29% of this story is pure bliss.
